Rugby U


45' Wales knock on on halfway attempting to recover their own clearing kick, and Scotland will have the first scrum of the half.

47' Another dangerous grubber kick from the Scots, and Hogg is haring after it, but it's safely watched into touch by Adams. Wales clear via Patchell.

48' The Welsh defence continues to smother Scotland, as they intercept again and come up over halfway. Scotland penalised, and Gauzere is having a little chat with John Barclay about his mischief in the ruck. Halfpenny will try and add another three from about 45m out.

PENALTY to Wales. No trouble for Halfpenny from the middle of the pitch. Wales stretch their lead out to 20 points, and it's a long way back for Scotland now. Halfpenny is having a cracking overall game.

50' Laidlaw is on for Scotland, as Scotland knock on once more. Scotland scored over 50 points against Australia in their last match. None so far after 50 minutes today though. And Scotland are penalised at the scrum, as the Millennium stadium sings lustily. Superb kick from Patchell into the corner.

52' Wales in their own lineout, and have the ball 10m out. Committed defence from Scotland, and a quick chip over the defensive line comes to nothing. Scotland clear, and Wales will come again from their own 10m line.

53' Josh Adams flies away down the wing, but doesn't have the space to score. He does well to keep the ball, but Scotland have won it back, and clear into the Welsh half. Wales clear, and Scotland give away an accidental offside penalty trying to claim the high ball. All going Wales' way at the moment.

55' Patchell misses touch with the penalty this time, and Scotland have the ball. Russell kicks the ball away, but the chase is poor, and Patchell has all the time in the world to clear to touch on halfway.

56' Scotland are up to the Welsh 10m line, and are looking to get around the outside of the Welsh defence... But knock on again. Welsh scrum.

57' Safe ball for Wales, and Steff Evans invokes Shane Williams with some devilish sidesteps before being taken down on the Scottish 10m line. Wales are still going forwards, up to the Scottish 22, and the crowd lift their volume as Patchell powers the ball towards the line. Wales are over the line...
